Grafana YouTube CI codecov CodeQL


The RSS/Atom data source is a plugin for Grafana that retrieves RSS/Atom feeds and allows to visualize them using Dynamic Text and other panels.


  • Grafana 8.5+, Grafana 9.0+ is required for version 2.X.
  • Grafana 8.0+ is required for version 1.X.

Getting Started

RSS/Atom data source can be installed from the Grafana Catalog or use the grafana-cli tool to install from the command line:

grafana-cli plugins install volkovlabs-rss-datasource


  • Supports RSS 2.0, RSS 1.0 and Atom.
  • Works great with Dynamic Text panel by Marcus Olsson (marcusolsson-dynamictext-panel).
  • Returns Channel (Feed) data, Items (Entries) or both as separate data frames.
  • Extract and parse as additional fields:
    • Image from Meta.
    • H4 and Image from the Encoded content.
    • Media:Group for YouTube.
  • Filter items/entries based on the selected Time Range.



Grafana supports managing data sources by adding one or more YAML config files in the provisioning/datasources folder.
